I see it said bike TBC. What you thinking of bringing?
I have a Husky TE630 at the moment but am considering getting a CRF250l, I like the look of the Rally but it's too tall for me, so just waiting at the moment.

If it were I, I'd ride the 630....it has the legs for cruising and the ooomph of over 600cc's..........you could always test a CRF and see if it can sit at plus 115kph with all of your kit ......bear in mind especially when it comes to long stretched-out mountain autoroute climbs, of which we'll hit in Spain....these can slow you down if you don't have the ooomph.


Last years CRF's were topping out at about 90kph albeit on changed lowered gearing before any off road. Dead slow on any autoroute climbs. One was considerably heavier than the other due to kit. Hard on the engines to keep them singing along.



:D

Best of luck with the off road practice.

Morn'in.....

By coincidence I was checking various sailing dates/times last night from Spain; with this in mind it will dictate our port of entry to Maroc and any routes thereafter.


I've gingerly started to plan!!
